As November begins, life starts feeling a whole lot busier leading up to the end of another semester...
We often focus so much on what's at the end of our current storm that we are unable to rejoice or have a grateful heart for what is in our life now. In a conversation I had with one of my roommates, we were talking about the struggles we face now that we didn't have two years ago. These are the experiences that we once longed for and looked forward to and now we long for new and different experiences.
Lately, I've battled with having a positive and thankful heart, despite certain circumstances, versus self pity and uncertainty. Now, after having conversations with several different people, I choose to love every moment that God gives me. I choose to love people, with no exceptions. I choose to love my educational journey. I choose to love the things that push me past what I believe are my limits.
Although I know that things and people are not always going to be perfect, I trust in God's plan for my life because I can see where He has brought me from and how much I've developed over the past few years. I hope that in another two years, I am different than who I am today. But for now, I'll try my best to enjoy the moments I am given and not try to look past it, but to see in it.
I hope you all are having a great beginning to the holiday season and I hope that you will also try to see the great things in your life RIGHT NOW, regardless of the stage of life you are in.
& remember, it's never too early to start listening to Christmas music to cheer you up. Just saying ;)
